The southern part of the Indian Ocean is one of the few places we have found where the trades blow as advertised… and then some. Intermezzo is shown here departing Christmas Island for Cocos Keeling at the start of a long haul across this boisterous bit of ocean. This photo was taken by Jimmy Schmidt […]
We made a quick trip home to tie up a few loose ends and make the tax man happy…We have enjoyed catching up with family and friends over the past few weeks. Abby watched each bag being loaded into the car and pouted on the garage floor… She is in g…
I hope I can upload this important plan view of the newly designed steps leading to the pilot house. KKY 55-005 will be the first Expedition model to feature this new access. One of the reasons I’m here sharing my excitement about this spec…

Today is Dee Dee’s first birthday. Keeping with her nautical heritage, she met this important milestone off the coast of Georgia and South Carolina as she embarked on her second offshore overnight passage. We are all very proud of our little girl and l…
Singkey was just here for a long weekend and also new friends Peter and Cathy for a night and lovely day, so I’m pleasantly tired. But I’m getting so far behind on my Ipswich emails that I’m sending this out as is and hopefully most of it makes sense!

Okay, so this Mac laptop is fantastic, but the operator, not so much. I had Tom B. re-send me the pictures I seem to have messed up yesterday. I had to tell him that a lot of folks might be really unhappy with me if I didn’t get these pics …
Great Musicians come together to help Free the Orca’s
One by one the rock bands that had booked to play at Sea World learned of the horrors of the place and refused to play. Our own Seattle band Heart, Joan Jett, and many others told Sea World they could not support the captivity of Orca Whales.
Many of those groups got together today in Seattle to do the Kiss the Sky concert with all proceeds going to anti captivity groups. Some of my favorite performers were there, Grahan Nash, Heart, Joan Jett, Country Joe MacDonald. Many of my old whale hugger friends too; Ken Balcomb, his son Kelly, Paul Sponge, Michael Harris and others. the group of which i hold a board position, Orca Conservancy was a prime organizer. i have never wanted to be back in Seattle as much as today, getting video clips sent to me during the show. Graham Nash backed by Heart doing CSN songs, wow!!!
Not being there i did the next best thing, i donated a 3 night cruise on Furthur in beautiful Thailand. The bidding is already going well. So friends here is your chance to spend time with the Furthur crew, enjoy some of the best cruising in the world and help whales all at the same time, Please send in your bid today!
i hope one to see you on Furthur, and so do the whales in captivity.
